Full Student Membership

A candidate for Full Student Membership of Alpha Mu Gamma, applying through a chapter, shall have completed one of the alternative language requirements:

  1. He/she shall offer two final course grades of "A" in two college level courses (each at least 3 semester units) of the same foreign language or American sign language (ASL)
  2. A candidate who is a native of non-English speaking country, may offer two final course grades of "A" in college level English or English as a Second Language (ESL).

A candidate shall also have attained a minimum accumulative Grade Point Average of "B" in a college level work.

Any chapter may adopt for itself higher, but not lower, requirements than those above. Each of the two college level courses of the target language must be at least three semester units.

Associate Membership

Associate Membership in a chapter may be granted by the chapter to any student who has met part of the requirements for Full Membership and has expressed an interest in eventually becoming a Full Member. Upon the completion of all the requirements, such an Associate Member shall be eligible for Full Membership.

Honorary Membership

Honorary membership in a chapter is open to community and civic leaders recognized for their language ability, for their interest in the study and use of foreign languages, or for their demonstration of a sympathetic understanding of other peoples. It may also be granted to any person who has performed significant service to the chapter.

Faculty Membership

Faculty membership in a chapter is open to any faculty member of the foreign language department (or departments) of the institution where the chapter is situated. Please contact your chapter advisor.

Fees and Dues Required of Student Members

Full membership National Initiation dues are, at present, $25. Individual chapters may levy whatever local initiation fee they choose to impose for their various purposes.

In each subsequent semester (or trimester or quarter) the chapter can collect from each active Full Member whatever local dues the chapter imposes. The local dues cover all local expenses, although some chapters supplement them through fund-raising activities.

Associate members and honorary members pay $2 national dues (to cover cost of the certificate), while faculty members pay $5. Their respective chapter fees and dues are set locally. The chapter may purchase Keys/Pins for honorary and faculty members through the National Office at the usual cost.
